Open trial session for passengers with additional accessibility needs

Do you have a mobility aid and are new to buses? We invite you to come and practice getting on and off a bus with a wheelchair, pram, or other mobility aid in a friendly and unhurried setting.  You can try it at your own pace without any passengers on board, and ask Metro representatives any accessibility questions you have.

This is a public event with limited places available, hosted by Metro and the City of Hobart.

When:     Tuesday 20 March 2018, 10.30 am to 12 noon
